Tour de Rozel

Thursday's large tide and stunning weather created ideal conditions for kayaking at Tour de Rozel.  The lack of wind and swell meant that the race didn't really develop, it was just really fats moving moving water.  It is always difficult to estimate the speed of tidal flows but I estimated that it was about 8 knots, unfortunately the photographs don't do justice to the speed at which the water was flowing.  What we do know was that it was a great way to spend a couple of hours after work.

Looking back towards the headland across the main tidal flow.
  Great conditions.
